Souk Sharq isn't as big as Avenues Mall but surely one can spend quiet time shopping and walking around. Lots of fast food restaurants as well as Sultan Center Shopping Mall is there for those who want to buy home stuffs. Overall: 5 Stars

With lots of new and large shopping malls popping up everywhere in Kuwait the last few years, it is easy to see Souk Sharq is neither. Nevertheless, Souq Sharq has a pleasant atmosphere and is located beautifully between the yacht harbour (marina) and the sea. Sultan Center, the large supermarket is really great..

The mall is well maintained and unique as it is surrounded by the sea and large Marina. The anchor store is Sultan Center which is probably the best place for buying fine food in Kuwait. Restaurants at the mall are limited to fast food and casual dining and most are older brands.

Until recently, with more modern upmarket malls coming up in Kuwait, Souk Sharq used to be one of Kuwait's better malls. The location is still set very well, on a small reclamation just off the coastal road at Sharq near Salmiya, it has two bridges connecting it to the road with a small yachting marina between them. Kuwait is very... More

A small enough mall, by Kuwaiti standards, but very quiet and pleasant. You can spend time shopping, eating and finally (if the weather permits it) take a stroll along the beach or to the fish market nearby. There is also a Sultan center in the mall if you would like to go to a supermarket.

A really nice mall located next to a marina. It is a good place to stroll around, shop, and get some food. Beaches are nearby along with the fish market. The thermometer in the center of the mall is really interesting to look at.
